4 Steps to Get Out of Overwhelm Now

Kelly Eckert

I just got home from a weekend of training and networking in Phoenix, and I have to admit that I woke up feeling not just a bit overwhelmed this morning. I was really tired after not sleeping at all during my two red-eye flights Sunday night. I discovered that we didn’t have much food in the house or gas in the car. And I had a long and growing to-do list.

I stayed in bed an extra half-hour to meditate, in hopes of finally getting up on the RIGHT side of the bed. It helped, but I still found myself on-edge and irritable this morning.

Then I decided to do something about it. I realized that I was giving in to the overwhelm. I was letting myself become a victim to my circumstances. I *know* that I have more power than that. In fact, I have a super power. It’s called Choice.

Meet Your Personal Brand Manager

Kelly Eckert

You already have a personal brand manager. And if you aren’t actively using them, then your brand is missing out on being as awesome as it could—and should—be.

You’ve heard about your inner critic—the inner fear-based voice that you should not listen to.

Well, your personal brand manager is actually an inner brand manager—inner wisdom that you absolutely must listen to.

You inner brand manager has a big-picture view of you and your brand. It sees all possible paths and helps you choose the right one for you. It knows who your ideal client it and what they need to hear from you.

And your inner brand manager is desperate to share this information with you!

You Don’t Need a Harvard Degree to Write Your Own Ticket

Kelly Eckert

When I was in 3rd grade, an IQ test that I took at school told my dad that I was smart—which I guess he couldn’t figure out on his own!  From that day on, he pushed me to do well in school (which meant A’s, only A’s and nothing but A’s) so I could go to Harvard. Because, as he always told me, “With a Harvard degree, you can write your own ticket.”

Instead of telling you all about my years of caving to pressure, rebelling by saying I’d rather go to Yale, going to Harvard after all, suffering from depression and physical issues, I’m going to jump to the chase and tell you the punchline.

Harvard degree or no degree at all, you always write your own ticket.

Sadly, my father never realized this truth. If he had, I believe he’d still be here today. You see, my father killed himself because he gave into the misperception that life was happening to him. He had so many regrets about who he could have been and what he could have. Instead of believing that he a choice, he felt overwhelmed by circumstances.

My End Stinks, Too!—or, Getting Good at Intuition

Kelly Eckert

One of the first jokes my mom told me went like this:

At the beginning of spring, a mother skunk told her baby skunks that it was time to end their winter hibernation and come out into the world. The babies had never seen theskunkbaby-300x170 outside world and were understandably afraid to come out. When they emerged from their burrow, they were thrilled to discover buds and blooms and sunlight. One baby skunk was curious about how his mother knew it was time to come out. “Mama,” he asked. “How come you knew it was time to come out of the burrow?”

“Oh, my instincts told me,” his mother answered him.

The baby skunk looked perplexed and said, “Well, my end stinks, too, but it never told me anything.”

Is Your Brand Sacred

Kelly Eckert

Is your brand sacred?

If not, why not?

If you’re a solopreneur, public figure or thought leader, your life is your brand.

The most effective brand you can create—one that will get you noticed, get you clients and get you what you want—is the one that is a soulful and authentic expression of your life.

And that’s what makes your brand sacred.

Now, when I say “your brand,” you know I don’t mean your logo, right?

Are You a Quitter or a Fail-er?

Kelly Eckert

No, that’s not a typo in the title. I really do mean to ask if you are a “failer.” Not a failure. I do not accept that anyone is ever a failure. But a failer we can be. A failer is someone who keeps trying, who keeps failing . . . until they succeed.

The only true failure is in quitting.

“A failure is not always a mistake; it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” —BF Skinner
“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”—Bill Cosby

In spite of all the pithy (and wise) quotes out there about failure, you probably still want to avoid it, right? We all do. I mean, who sets out saying, “Ooh, I can’t wait to fail!”?

Eating Chocolate and Kissing Cats—or, What Makes YOU Happy?

Kelly Eckert

In my coaching business, I don’t offer a done-for-you system for being happy, for getting more clients or for making more money. Even my Fear Releasing Method isn’t completely done-for-you. It offers guided meditations and other suggested tools to release fear—but always with the suggestion that you ultimately do what works best for you.

So why don’t I offer any done-for-you systems? I mean, that seems to be where all the money is.

The reason I don’t do them is because the best system for you is the system that works best for you.

I understand too much about neurobiology and spirituality to presume to know which system or other is THE ONE BEST WAY to be happy/get more clients/make more money.

How to Avoid Client Mayhem

Kelly Eckert

I have a confession. I hate the whole “you have to pick an ideal client” thing. I know, I know. I’ve written about how you can (and should!) pick an ideal client (and a niche). I can coach my clients to pick exactly the perfect ideal client for them. But doing it for myself just sucks.

I don’t want to pick just one “ideal client,” you see. I want to be here for all of you. I want to help anyone who needs my help.

(By the way, you should re-read those last three sentences with a bit of a whiny voice in your head. Because I was definitely whining when I wrote them.)

Well, I want to share a little epiphany with you about ideal clients. (I love epiphanies. And I love sharing them.)

Life and Business Lessons from Year of the Snake

Kelly Eckert

This Chinese New Year ushered in the Year of the Snake. Normally, I don’t pay much attention to what animal year it is beyond simply noting, “It’s the Year of the Dragon. Cool. Would you please pass a vegetable dumpling?”

But this year, as I’ve been working rather closely with my own spirit animals, I was nudged to pay more attention to this Year of the Snake, particularly what lessons Snake has to offer us.

I’ve pulled out five big lessons from Snake. Even if your spirit animal isn’t Snake (Snake is not one of mine), Snake’s lessons can still be important for you. We are to learn from our spirit animals, not become them. So even if your spirit animal is Elephant or Mouse, Snake still has lessons to teach you.

Here they are.
